Mombasa Coast activities
The warm, tropical waters of the Indian Ocean are an irresistible draw to water lovers; there is no better way to explore this environment than to strap on a mask and snorkel and go for a swim! Snorkelling in these clear, blue waters provide a breathtaking introduction to marine life. The best times for diving in Kenya is December through March, with many seasonal species, such as the Whale shark and Manta ray, making their visits during this time. Long, fringing reefs run along the shore, offering drift dives, drop-offs and a large variety of marine habitats within one small area.
Hot Air Balloon
What could be more magical than floating over herds of wildlife in the Masai Mara in a colourful hot air balloon? It's the best way to see the game and the savannah plains. Balloon flights start shortly after dawn when the air is cool and calm and the animals are at their most active. Blowing up the balloon is part of the experience and once up in the air you'll be able to watch the sunrise over the plains. The flight is magically silent, except for the hiss of the burner as the pilot steers the balloon over the tree tops and woodland, dipping down to get closer to the game on the plains.
Relax on a romantic evening trip aboard a traditional dhow and enjoy the perfect combination of good food, music and romantic atmosphere as you cruise in Mombasa Old Habour. Highlights include a sumptuous seafood meal, dancing under the stars and a gentle sail past the peaceful creeks of Mombasa Island.
